The time has come, Lord. You have rolled back the stone, defeated the power of evil, and brought light in to the places of darkness. Let us bear good news to the poor, minister to the prisoners, bring sight to the blind, and bring hope to the oppressed. All of these things we would do to bring honor and glory to your name. Let this day be the day when our lives become your lives and our days become filled with the power of your Holy Spirit. We pray this prayer in the name of our Risen Lord, who taught us to pray...

Movie Night - Facing The Giants
Sunday, April 19 @ 7 pm
From the award-winning producers of Flywheel and Fireproof comes an action-packed, family-friendly drama about a high school football coach who draws up a new game plan for his team ... and himself.
In six years of coaching, Grant Taylor has never had a winning season. Even the hope of a new season is squelched when the best player on his Shiloh Eagles decides to transfer schools. After losing their first three games of the season, the coach discovers a group of fathers are plotting to have him fired. Combined with pressures at home, Coach Taylor has lost hope in his battle against fear and failure.
However, an unexpected challenge helps him find a purpose bigger than just victories. Daring to trust God to do the impossible, Coach Taylor and the Eagles discover how faith plays out on the field ...and off. With God, all things are possible.
